8x vs 16x Anti-Aliasing - cod: black ops

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a quick question about anti-aliasing in COD: black ops. I'm using a gtx470 video card and the highest setting I can set Anti-Aliasing to in the game is 8x.

I went to a friends house last night who has 2 gtx260's in SLI mode and he has the option to turn his anti-aliasing to 16x.

Is this because he has 2 video cards and I only have 1 gtx470?

* he has a better monitor, I run at 1680x1050 and he runs at 1980x1080. Maybe that has something to do with it?

You could just have NVIDIA Control Panel override the game's AA settings.

thats pretty odd, is he running a different ini file?

how much memory do the 260s have, and what about your 470? Are the 260s 1gb and your 470 768 or whatever. All i can think of.

He's running the stock setup. He has an Alienware Area 51. I have a 1.25GB Gigabyte GTX470 (super overclocked series) card running @ 700Mhz. You would think my setup would be better than his. The one factor I can think of is his monitor allows a higher resolution than mine.

I will check to see if there is a setting in the nvidia control panel.

I was able to do 16xAA in Black Ops before the last update. The update capped it at 8xAA. Yeah, 16xAA isn't even listed as an option anymore.

That would be so weird if the patch took the option to set 16x aa out. I'm surprised nobody has noticed this.
